Summary Plot (S1-S3) Orig.[edit]

There's Norman (Blumark Roces), the Bisoy boy next door who's chums with chick magnet Dennis (Timmy Boy Sta. Maria). Dennis can relate to girls, that's why he's close to Junniper (Eda Nolan), the shy “promdi” girl who's as nice as Charie (Charee Pineda), the “sweetilicous” babe of the group. Charie can easily tame resident bullie Badjie (Badjie Mortiz), who is feared by everyone, even star athlete Bob (Joem Bascon).

The jock, who's not so lucky with the girls, hangs out with the shrewd and “alaskador” Zap (Kontin Roque) who's attracted the attention of showbiz fanatic Maffi (Janelle Quintana). Maffi's obsession with all things showbiz extends her friendship with “artistahin” fashionista Alex (Cathy Gonzaga).

The certified rich gal in the group though is best friends with Trish (Jana Pablo) the calorie-counting fashion-obsessed middle class girl. Mike (Mikel Campos) loves to count too, well his money that is, up to the last centavo. His many secrets can be compared to the very mysterious Bangs (Valerie Garcia) who's discreetly into Norman.

One of the most distinctive episodes is when they drop a book and when they bend down to pick it up, someone else picks it up too. The people who picked up the book start dating, introducing Lea Michaela A. Cabili and Mikee Gabriel.
